Depends: If you have been having unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. Do a home pregnancy test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If the result is negative repeat the test in 5-7 days if you do not get your period by then.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine.
